    Super Clean GSX

    After a very long hiatus today marked a truly significant day in the car's history.After being put into storage 3 years ago due to critically dangerous amounts of rust in the shock towers, two weeks ago with the help of JasonDSM the GSX and a donor car I purchased were towed to a local shop in...

    2G Finding turbo-to-manifold bolts in 2021

    The bolt threads stripped.In my personal experience every time a thread strips on a bolt it's because the bolt wasn't designed to handle high torque specs. I can back this up because when I use a bolt of higher torque specs it does just fine. The threads were perfectly okay and the class 11...

    2G Finding turbo-to-manifold bolts in 2021

    Oh trust me, I know I will ;)I've had my GSX for almost 5 years and it was my first turbo AWD car that started as a daily and then became a project. Since buying a WRX as a daily a couple years ago I fought every single day not to wind more power into it and instead to focus on reliability...

    2G Help needed Running lean/only getting 5lbs boost

    Not to clog up this thread but a wideband o2 sensor wouldn't be a bad thing to have either. I run one in both my cars both as a safety measure and for logging purposes :DAlso also I'd consider running an electronic boost gauge rather than an analog one. Again, I have one in both of my cars...

    2G Finding turbo-to-manifold bolts in 2021

    I just ordered an OEM set from JNZ. I'm not sold on ARP's exhaust bolts, though I do like the bolt-head design and I have heard stellar things about their head studs. As I said I completely rounded one of their exhaust bolts off, and a rounded thread won't cause a rounded bolt ime.And I don't...

    2G Finding turbo-to-manifold bolts in 2021

    Hey, if it's pricey but it's worth it then it's not too pricey :DI'll have to cross my fingers and hope that those bolts along with a thread chaser are enough to fix my issue. I really don't want to have to a.) tap new threads or b.) replace the compressor housing :( part of my punishment for...

    As with all things DSM both thanks to time and the EPA many aftermarket/ replacement parts are becoming harder and harder to find ....My issue is with the four turbo-to-manifold bolts. I bought a used Evo III Big 16G that came with a CX Racing manifold (not ideal but it was free) and a Megan...
